Mother's Day Gift Ideas for Kids
Cards, gift certificates, bookmarks, and other great ideas for mom this year
by Erin Teare Martin
And don't forget grandmothers, aunts, and other important women in your life!
Print card, decorate however you wish, and add your favorite Mother's Day wish. If you use markers, we suggest pasting two pieces of paper together when you make the card so that the marker won't bleed through.
Print and cut out bookmark, decorate. Cut out a backing from a cereal box and paste on to the back of the bookmark (this will make it stiff).
Choose different chores that you could help mom with, for example, doing the dishes (including putting them away), cleaning your room without her having to ask, folding and putting away laundry, raking leaves and doing other yard work, fixing her computer if it breaks, washing her car, or making your own lunch.
Cut a piece of paper into fours, write the task you will perform on the card, and decorate the certificate with your own fantastic art.
You can wrap the certificates or let your art do the talking!
